Another Wright 'Bootleg' Home Hits the Market in Oak Park

New, 1 comment

The parade of Frank Lloyd Wright homes coming to the market continues in the Chicago area. While we were out frolicking in the great outdoors last week, Wright's Francis J. Woolley House in Oak Park came back on the market for just a hair below $1 million ($989,000, to be exact). Like the nearby Thomas Gale House, which came on the market earlier this month, the Woolley House is one that Wright designed while he was still working for Adler & Sullivan (an offense that later got him fired). And like the other 'bootleg' houses, most people would have trouble picking this one out of a lineup and attributing it to Wright. The 6BD, 4BA home has been updated and modernized, with "all new systems" and a 700-bottle wine cellar, according to the listing.
